With over a million visitors annually, Stockholmsmässan in Älvsjö is one of the world’s leading organisers of exhibitions, conferences and public fairs. The new entrance, designed by Rosenbergs Arkitekter, starts construction this month and is expected to be completed by fall 2013. Their design features a high, smooth cantilevered roof floating on tall glass sections and is marked by a prominent new building. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The roof is illuminated at night by colored lighting. Inside, digital signs lead the visitors to the exhibition halls and conference rooms. A new flight of stairs and an elevator connects the garage and entrance floor with the new press center which appears as a floating volume in the vast 2200m2 entrance room.
